In response to these testing times Brighthill Farm in conjunction with their stallion partners have created an initiative designed to assist breeders for the upcoming season to continue their breeding operations.
We have great confidence in our stallion roaster for the season approaching. All three stallions are highly credentialed and have strong appeal both domestically and internationally. We hope this initiative will assist breeders to make positive decisions now that will have them well positioned to maximise rising markets and racing in the future.
Further to our service fee reductions we have designed a two part payment option to support the breeders for the upcoming season.

Preferment has made the perfect start to his stud career having averaged 114 mares each season since going to stud. The four time G.1 winning son of Zabeel has left exceptional types, very much in the Zabeel mould.
A very high percentage of his first yearlings are already in Australia including four yearlings bought by Chris Waller. Other trainers who purchased Preferment yearlings this year include Phillip Stokes, Wexford Stables, Ellerton Zahra Racing, Sean Ritchie, Paul Jenkins, Moloney Racing, and Big Red Farm Japan.
With a really strong second crop of foals that will be yearlings next season, Preferment has some very exciting times ahead.
Eminent proved one of the most popular first season sires here in New Zealand. The first son of Frankel to stand in Australasia had a great start to his career breeding 114 quality mares sent by many of the best breeders. His high quality race career and superb pedigree as well as the achievements of his super sire Frankel have made him a very popular stallion and this season looks to be no different.
Dalghar is one of the best bred stallions in New Zealand. He is a half-brother to champions Dalakani and Daylami. He has established himself as a genuine proven sire with quality race horses such as Karaka Million 3YO Classic winner Scott Base and ARC Champagne Stakes 2YO winner Astara. His recent Australian winner Amusez Moi and Hong Kong winner Armor Star continue to prove his true international sire credentials.
His biggest crop to date and one of real quality are turning three in August, an exciting Spring awaits. His new service fee reflects amazing value and a great opportunity for breeders.
